    Html/css or c# and unity game engine?

    So I'm a VERY beginner coder. And by that I mean I've gotten 2 lessons done on tree house. One on codecademy and that's about it. My question is a bit unusual but understand I'm not sure much of anything. So through team treehouse I've been learning html/css. I'd like to think I have some knowledge of the basics but not entirely yet. My goal as a programmer is to eventually work with games. Or just to be able to create a game through an indie team. I was recommended by a cousin who works for naughtydog to switch what I'm learning and just start learning C# and unity game engine. But I'm just now getting the hang of html/css. I know part of me really found making websites really interesting and thought I could make a part time as a web developer. And on the other half maybe independently makes some games. But I'm just not sure which is the better of the two to start with. On one hand I do what I want to do and not sure of a financial outcome, on the other I learn the language I started with and possibly get myself started on a small career. Is it smart to try and learn both simultaneously? This is my first language Choice after all.

    Hello there Drummerlee,

    You can easily switch from programming languages at this point of time. Since you haven't spend that much time in CSS/HTML or C# whatsoever.
    But it's all up to you, if you like to make websites and that motivates you more than actual game making. I'd suggest to stick with that. But! if that's not the case it would be a smart decision to start with c# in Unity. There's alot of documentation for this online. Especially on YouTube.

    And if you already have contacts within the indie game industry i'd suggest you start learning C#. And for financial outcome, both are pretty positive. It's a well known fact that software engineers are needed in this world, for gaming development or web development.

    I'm currently studying Game Engineering. And i'm in my first year. So i kind of understand where you're comming from as a beginner coder. But stick with one language to learn, it's already hard enough. Learning two at the same time will confuse you in the long run. Also, if you get the hang of one certain language it'll be easier to learn another on in the future.

    Goodluck!
